“Piranha 3DD” Is Coming For You

I did indeed see Jerry O’Connell get his manhood bitten off on the waters of Lake Havasu in “Piranha 3D.” Thank you to Amelia for convincing me to go. I thoroughly enjoyed it. As I watched this piece of highbrow film magic, I suspected that a sequel was probable. But is it possible to to…

Oscar-nominated actor, performance artist, writer, aspiring film director, Yale Ph.D student, and now … college professor. James Franco does it all!

Ferris Bueller Comes Of Age

Running through the woods, jumping in slow motion, kissing in front of stained glass, driving off into the blinding sun, and voila! “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” is magically transformed into an indie coming-of-age film. It’s a wonder what editing and some instrumental music can do. [The Daily What]…

Greta Gerwig Joins The Hollywood Oral Sex Movement

“Yeah — ‘Blue Valentine,’ ‘Black Swan’… ladies getting it on! They’re all different movies and it’s done differently; I think Greenberg’s use of [oral sex] is the most comedic, because there’s something so funny about people hooking up for the first time and he immediately goes down on her … I think, I hope, it’…

The Ouija Board Predicts Yes, There Will Be A Film About The Game

The Ouija board has been the preferred form of occult entertainment for middle school sleepovers throughout time. I mean, how else would I have known that I’m going to have my first child when I’m 32? Wait! I am 32! Holy crap! I’m about to get pregnant any minute now. But I digress, the important…

Introducing: The Lifetime Television For Women Movie Club

If I believed in guilty pleasures, I’d say that watching Lifetime movies is one of my deepest guilty pleasures. But since I don’t believe you should feel guilty about one of the greatest things in the world, I’m just going to say I really, really like these movies. Lifetime’s films fall into two basic…

A Jury Will Decide If “Catfish” Was A Hoax

Even though the filmmakers and producers claimed that the movie “Catfish” was NOT a hoax, the question still lingered in people’s minds. After seeing the film and having endless discussions with friends—mostly about how hot Nev is—I feel confident that the film was really, really real. But not everyone agrees with me about the film’…

What Do You Think Of This Short Film Tavi Story Produced?

Up until recently, fashion blogger Tavi’s professional work in the fashion industry could be called “gimmicky”—projects that rely on Tavi’s character as a young blogger. Yet lately, the smart fashion enthusiast has chosen to remain behind the scenes of her work. Like in this video she produced in collaboration with Alia Raza and Derek…

A New Documentary Reveals The Inconvenient Truth About Education

On my movie list for this weekend is “Waiting for Superman.” It’s a new documentary about how America’s education system is failing our kids. As a former teacher at a poorly funded school, I feel like there are no words to describe how insane (in both a negative and sometimes a positive way)…

Kristen Wiig can do no wrong in my eyes. She’s like the new Gilda Radner of “Saturday Night Live” and, finally, her career is starting to expand beyond that. Recently, she’s brought some of her funny to the big screen. And thus, I was so excited to find out that Kristen has co-written a new…

Sex & Celluloid: Harry Potter & Muggle Sex

It’s time for a new Harry Potter movie, which opened at midnight last night/this morning, and judging from the posters/trailers, this will be the one with all the sex in it. Right? I don’t really follow the Rowling’s continuum but from what I gather, when young wizards hit puberty they make out and have sexual…

I Live in NYC, So Where Are All The Celebs?

Every morning I peruse the daily newspapers and online blogs to see what has been going on in the world while I slept. Sometimes I am waking up refreshed from a good nights sleep, sometimes I am a zombie and every blue moon I am hungover. The morning after a night out is always a…

Video Games: Chick Flicks Get Played

The triumvirate of teen queen movies: Pretty In Pink, Mean Girls, and Clueless — are all getting remade into Broadway musicals. Sike! Although we’re sure some of the score will be watered down into electronic bleeps, they’re actually turning the dramas into full on games.
